50th Birthday Party Theme: Elegant Black and White
This black and white 50th birthday party theme is very classy and yet simple at the same time! It's a very easy theme to organize, it's got one rule - - use black and white. Using these two together have a great impact because they are total opposites that everything just stands out. (Scroll down for photo.)
This theme uses black tablecloths, white napkins, white chair covers banded with black sashes, and black and white balloons as centerpieces for each large round table.
Decorate with a bunch of black and white balloons. Be sure to use black ribbon on the white balloons and white ribbon on the black balloons. It is nice to have clusters of balloons all over.
Another idea is to have 3-4 balloons on every table attached to your centerpiece.
Streamers & Banners:
Buy black and white streamers and inter-twine them together. You can drape them from corner to corner in the room, or around the edges of the tables.

#2: Find striped dinnerware. So find something that is pin striped in black and white for plates and cups. To accent use a black fork, white knife, etc.
